This is the 28 March – 4 April 2014 edition of a “weekly digest of W3C news and trends” that I prepare for the W3C Membership and public-w3c-digest mailing list (publicly archived). This digest aggregates information about W3C and W3C technology from online media —a snapshot of how W3C and its work is perceived in online media.

- W3C TAG face-to-face meeting and Extensible Web Summit (held today)
